Chelsea may be one of the few sides to have beaten Manchester City this season, but Maurizio Sarri still believes Pep Guardiola’s side are the best team in Europe. The Blues got the better of the league leaders in December, but repeating that will require a great deal of concentration, according to the Italian.
Manchester City made a return to the top of the Premier League table in midweek with a surprisingly nervy 2-0 win away to the out of form Everton, following on from their dismantling of Arsenal last weekend and leaving them above Liverpool on goal difference. There’s no denying that this has been a more difficult season for the Citizens though. They have already suffered double the amount of defeats that they did in the entirety of last season, and all of those have come in the last 2 months. Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Leicester, and Newcastle have all taken maximum points off them, but while this might look promising for the visitors the fact that only one of these losses has come at the Etihad is key.
The Blues’ away form over the last few months has been rather poor, with 3 wins and 4 defeats making up their last 7 Premier League trips away. They have been beaten by Spurs, Wolves, Arsenal, and Bournemouth, and their recent loss to The Gunners made it 6 games without a win when visiting the other Premier League Big Six sides.
